Platte City, MO
Last night we had lots of rain
and lightening, and a bit of hail.
Nothing bad, we were happy about that!
Today we decided to find out
what was in Independence, MO.
As luck would have it,
we found a park named
George didn't know he owned a park!
Of course, his (our) last name is OWEN :-)
It was a beautiful park,
with some nice hiking trails.
The colors were spectacular..
We really enjoyed the fresh air,
and the walk did us good!
I finally got to see some turtles!
Next we went to see everything
as in Harry S.
The park ranger,
who took us through the house..
We had the traditional picture taken..
Walked around the historic square..
and finally had a frozen yogurt..
It was a great day of exploring!
We are ready to move on..
tomorrow we will be camping
in a new spot..
Carlyle Lake, IL
our first COE park!
